Pixie and I are very proud to support the Blogblast for Peace! In the spirit of world peace, we would like to introduce someone to you today. Her name is Mequelina, and my Mommie has sponsored her for several years through Save the Children. Mequelina lives in Mozambique! She is very nice, and very beautiful. Here is a photograph of Mequelina:Here is a picture she drew just for my Mommie! I think she is a pretty good artist, too.
We get to write to Mequelina, and learn all about her culture. Sometimes we send her little presents like stickers that she gets to share with her friends. This is from a letter Mequelina wrote, with the help of her translator:
I received your wonderful letter as well as the stickers that you sent to me. Thank you very much for your letter and the stickers. I am attending 2nd grade and my favorite subject is mathematics. I live with my grandmother; her name is Marta. My mother she is staying in Chibuto village and my father is working in South Africa. Thank you very much indeed for letting me know that you received the drawing which I sent to you; I am so excited to hear that. My favorite food is rice and fish meat. The weather here is very hot. We are in summer season. I will write to you next time. My best regards to you. With love, Mequelina.
